The Czinger 21C hypercar will break cover at Geneva next month.
Earlier this month, the first production example of the 1,750-HP SSC Tautra was unveiled nine years after the original concept debuted. But this isn't the only absurdly fast American hypercar on the horizon. Last week we got our first look at the upcoming Czinger 21C, a new American hypercar that's being built in Los Angeles, California. Details were scarce at the time, but now Czinger has announced the 21C's mind-blowing performance specifications.
Czinger claims the 21C hypercar will be capable of hitting 0-62 mph in just 1.9 seconds. To put this into context, that matches the claimed sprint time of the Tesla Roadster and is only slightly slower than the Rimac C_Two electric hypercar, which will hit 0-62 mph in 1.85-seconds. In other words, the Czinger 21C will be one of the fastest accelerating cars in the world.
This will be achieved thanks to an in-house developed hybrid powertrain and 3D printed components. While the powertrain hasn't been detailed yet, Czinger has confirmed it will produce a whopping 1,250 horsepower.
A new teaser video also gives us a closer look at the Czinger 21C's sleek design, which features short overhangs, a massive rear wing, split headlights, and a curved full-width light bar. Czinger describes the 21C as "an evolutionary leap in performance vehicle creation." It will be designed, manufactured and assembled in Los Angeles, California using the "world's most advanced production technologies."
We don't have to wait very long for the Czinger 21C to break cover, because the all-American hypercar will make its world debut at the 2020 Geneva Motor Show on March 3.
While the Czinger 21C will certainly be one to watch, it will face some stiff competition as Bugatti is expected to unveil the new hardcore Chiron R, while Koenigsegg is expected to show a new 300 mph+ version of the Jesko. Rimac will also present the long-awaited production version of the C_Two.
